Oak Ridge, Tennessee     April 7-9, 2015


Cyber and Information Security Research Conference

Cyberspace is fundamental to our national prosperity, as it has become critical to commerce, research, education, and government. Realizing the benefits of this shared environment requires that we are able to properly balance the risks and rewards, understand and communicate threats to security and privacy, and rapidly adapt any resulting approach to a changing adversarial environment.

The 10th Annual Cyber and Information Security Research Conference at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee will bring together cyber security researchers, program managers, decision makers, security vendors, and practitioners to discuss many challenging tasks and novel solutions pertaining to cyber security.

Research Themes

Research papers describing novel contributions in any area of cyber and information security are solicited. Papers may present techniques, applications, practical experience, theory, analysis, or experiments and evaluations. We encourage the submission of papers on technologies and methods that promise to improve cyber security practices, including, but not limited to, the following areas:
